By Rubén Morales Iglesias: Top-level Mexican researchers from Mexico’s National Institute of Forestry, Crop and Livestock Research on Wednesday conducted a second field school activity on soybean growth, care, and maintenance in San Carlos, Orange Walk, said The Ministry of Agriculture, Food Security, and Enterprise (MAFSE).
“More than 45 participants including Ministry technicians and producers from Shipyard, Little Belize, Spanish Lookout, Corozal, and Indian Creek were present for the activity,” said MAFSE.
According to Bartolo Rodríguez Santiago, Director of Mexico’s Southeast Regional Resource Center (CIRSE); Nicolás Maldonado Moreno, breeder of the Huastecas soybean varieties; Jesús Manuel Soto Rocha; Dr. Jhibrán Ferral Piña; and Dr. Mirna Hernández Pérez, all researchers with INIFAP, made presentations on pests and diseases, growth indicators, distinction between varieties, and best practices in growing soybean.
Minister of Agriculture Jose Abelardo Mai was present for the soybean maintenance activity which was the second conducted by México’s INIFAP here in Belize. During these activities, the Mexican researchers share information with local farmers and MAFSE technicians.
“The soybean field school activity follows on the commitment of both the Belizean and Mexican governments to further bilateral cooperation in agriculture for the mutual benefit of both countries,” said MAFSE.
Under the bilateral cooperation program, it is expected the researchers will continue visiting and sharing information with Belizean farmers and MAFSE technicians.
